Diane from My Time to Craft
Like most of the guest contributors, I've come to know Allison and Caroline through their challenges and became a regular participant early on. I've been a lifelong crafter in many mediums and find it a therapeutic release from the day to day grind of a full time job, wife, mom, school volunteer, and what ever else I've signed up for on any given week. I find the PCWC challenges suit my life because you can always bend the need to go out and buy a specific line of paper, include a certain number of embellishments, etc. The purpose is to get you to do what you love to do and what could be better than that!

Hello, I met (electronically) Allison and Caroline through their challenges and like to take part whenever I can. Some little things about me. I love reading especially science fiction! That's my first love. And my 2nd love is painting especially watercolor! The love of color got me interested in Paper Crafting and I oh so love Paper that I alwys try to keep 2 stacks - one to cut from and one to just look at and enjoy!If I can call myself a scrapbooker then I would say I am a hybrid scrapbooker. I love the ease of digis but love to touch and feel and so love embellishing. So for me hybrid is the way to go!

I live my life in widening circles that reach out across the world ~ Rainer Marie Rilke.
Where do I begin? I love to read. I collect quotes/sayings. I love science fiction/fantasy/urban fantasy. Star Trek and Buffy the Vampire are two of the best franchises ever created. I love paper. Crafting is something I discovered years ago when my (now) seven year old was just a baby. When he was less than two years old, we welcomed our second son into our family and there went my crafting time. But, a little over a year ago I got the itch again and started making things that at times, blow even me away. Paper crafting has become a way for me to express myself, to see something through from beginning to end. There is a little piece of my soul in everything I create. And with that, I hope you enjoy what you see here!

September Designers
 I met Allison and Caroline through the Cricut Circle and have enjoyed their weekly challenges. I consider myself a scrapbooker, but since purchasing my Cricut I've fallen in love with all kinds of paper crafting, and paper in general! I enjoy making cards, gifts, and the occasional home decor item. I find that crafting has been a way for me to deal with the ups and downs of life while chronicling it all along the way. I've recently taken the Copic plunge and love the endless possibilities that they bring to bring to my crafting arsenal. I'm learning new and exciting ways to combine all my crafting goodies and love to share what I discover. A few of my favorite items are my Cricut, Papertry Ink, Copics, My Mind's Eye and stamps! I'm constantly on the lookout for new techniques and tools to improve the way I craft. I'm excited to be a part of the challenge blog and look forward to seeing all of the creative talent.

Carole from On My Craftroom Wall
Hi all. A little bit about me. I am a wife of 34 years and the mother of a 28 year old daughter and 20 year old son. This makes  me sound really old, but I don't feel old. Well, maybe a little, but I digress. I was introduced to scrapbooking about 15 years ago through Creative Memories. My scrapbooking led to card making, which led me to paper crafts and altered art. I purchase my first baby bug in the summer of 2006 and so many other purchases followed. I have made so many friends due to the Cricut message board, Circle message board and my hobby. I consider it a huge blessing in my life. I am thrilled that Allison and Caroline have asked me to be a guest designer on their blog. I love them both for the joy they have spread with their weekly challenges!
